LAST Monday evening saw a great night’s training with Northern Ireland Youth Dressage. Orla, Lana, Ellen, Bethany, Eilish, Sam and Zara attended. The first group worked on a variety of things from developing feel for the right amount of energy in the paces, including lengthening and shortening, when to be a bit bolder, how to ride for calmness and swing, as well as position work.
The second group covered the same work with even more attention on the use of lateral exercises to engage the horses ‘mind’.
A huge thank you must go to Alison Mastin Moore and all the parents who put in so much time and effort.
